This is a simple activity that we did for Letter C week! We painted with cotton balls!
The teacher set out red, blue, and orange paint and a pile of cotton balls for the children to paint with.
The children simply pressed the cotton balls in the paint then printed with the cotton balls on their paper. I noticed that the cotton balls absorb lots of paint so we had to refill the paint several times…
After each child took a turn, we added new cotton balls to the paint. The used cotton balls get pretty soggy!
Painting with cotton balls is something I have seen often but it never gets old and the kids love it!
